Just looking for some advice. I will be flying to and from Europe and the US next year and will be travelling on other OW carriers notably BA,Cathay Pacific, AA and Qatar. I am aiming to travel to maintain my Gold status if possible, and would take this status credit disparity when booking.
I am aware of previous differences in earning rates, in particular Qatar being much less.
So is it a case of..
BA and Cathay equal
And finally last year I traveled on a BA ticket from Brisbane, the flight number was ticketed BA, but operated by Qantas to Singapore. I received BA level status credits, is this typical?

Your question is a bit unclear. You seem to have multiple questions thrown in there. Let's unpack it. What do you want to know specifically?

That's correct - points and status credits are earned based on the flight number you've been ticketed on and not the operating airline. Flying QF on a BA flight number means you get the BA earn rate, - why it's important to always try book it on a QF flight number.
